        A funny anecdote concerning the movie _The Race for the Double Helix_

        A few years ago Jim Watson came out to the Worcester Foundation in MA
to give a talk.  He spoke about the Double Helix movie a bit and said that he
was very impressed that they chose such a handsome actor (Jeff Goldblum) to playhis part.  That is he was impressed until he saw the movie _The Fly_ !

(For those who don't know, in _The Fly_ Jeff Goldblum portrayed a scientist
whose body hideously disintegrated into that of a fly during the course of the
film)
